Doc says winter roads are fine

Doctor has never missed a clinic in the Nass Valley due road conditions.

Dear Sir:

Since early January, I have been doing medical clinics in the Nass Valley. This involves driving between Terrace and New Aiyansh and, also, travelling to Gitwinkhsilkw, Lakalzap and Gingolx.

You will all be aware of the frequent and heavy snowfalls we have been experiencing.

I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with the job that the road crews are doing under very trying circumstances. They work day and night to keep the roads as safe as possible.

The steep grades, especially “Grizzly Hill” west of Lakalzap are well sanded. The crews in the Village of New Aiyansh also do a wonderful job at road clearing.

I may have been late for some of the clinics, but I have never missed a clinic due road conditions.

Donald W. Strangway, MD,

Terrace, BC
